Here on the islands we have bananas and I mean tons of bananas. At times I have more bananas than I know what to do with or can eat in a life time. Therefore, I am always giving away bananas, selling them by the kilo, and at times feeding the birds with them. I have made over 1000 banana breads, cakes, crapes, pudding and anything and everything you can think of with bananas. Boiled, baked, fried and even poe. One weekend I had so many ripe bananas I ended up making 25 banana breads, and 15 banana cakes to give away to my friends and neighbors. I made 3 batches of banana jelly and I don’t remember how many banana crêpes When I was searching for a new way to use up over ripe bananas I found this excellent video about life hacks and how to refresh your banana so you can eat it again. I though this was the funniest thing I had ever seen. Now this won’t work for me because I have too many bananas around but it sure might work for you. Take a look – here is the banana life hack video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ttjhOZjL59w What do you think does this work? Well guess what we did the banana challenge and it worked. We had fun with this life hack and the twins loved it. They ate the bananas faster than we could dry them with a hair dryer. You should try this if you have only a few bananas and don’t want to throw them away. Image source - personal image

Really? I suspect this is a leg-pull, especially the bit about the blow-drier turning the banana yellow again! Have you tried it?

@poehere Banana muffins are the destination for the two over-ripe bananas languishing in the fruitbowl currently. The experiment will have to wait...

@pgntwo I guess I would make muffins but can find any really good muffin pans here on the islands so will have to stick to bread and cakes. Enjoy your muffins I'm sure they will be tasty.

Haha! That is so cool. I cannot imagine having so many bananas around. I can get them from the supermarkets in my country for very cheap as well, but what you describe is awesome.

Guess so but yesterday we had 5 more trees that were ready to cut down and take the bananas from them. Each tree produced giant bananas and now what to do with them all. OH well we have bananas and more bananas and today some bananas will be a cake. Glad you enjoyed this.

@poehere I will definitely look up a banana cake recipe on the Internet now. I love bananas but never had a cake made from them. Good idea. :D

@Nooblet20 They are good and so easy to make. I use the Betty Crocker one for mine and everyone seems to love it a lot.

Banana after pilling can be used to clean the glass or even to clean some of the antiques. They can catch a lot of dust every now and then and keep things in control.
